'Twill weep for having wearied you: My father
O most dear mistress,
If you'll sit down,
No, precious creature:
It would become me
Poor worm! thou art infected; This visitation shews it.
You look wearily. F'er. No, noble mistress; 'tis fresh morning with me, When you are by at night. I do beseech you, (Chiefly, that I might set it in my prayers,) What is your name?
Miranda :-O my father, I have broke your hest' to say so!
Admir'd Miranda! Indeed, the top of admiration; worth What's dearest to the world! Full many a lady I have ey'd with best regard ; and many a time The harmony of their tongues hath into bondage
Brought my too diligent ear: for several virtues
I do not know .
I am, in my condition, A prince, Miranda ; I do think, a king; (I would, not so!) and would no more endure This wooden slavery, than I would suffer The flesh-fly blow my mouth.—Hear my soul speak;The very instant that I saw you, did My heart fly to your service; there resides, To make me slave to it; and, for your sake, Am I this patient log-man. Mira.
Do you love me? F'er. O heaven, O earth, bear witness to this sound, And crown what I profess with kind event,
If I speak true; if hollowly, invert
I am a fool,
: Fair encounter
Wherefore weep you?
My mistress, dearest,
. My husband then?
farewell, Till half an hour hence.
A thousand! thousand!
[Exeunt Fer. and Mir. Pro. So glad of this as they, I cannot be,
Who are surpriz'd with all; but my rejoicing
Another part of the island. Enter Stephano and TrinculO; CALIBAN
following with a bottle. Ste. Tell not me;--when the butt is out, we will drink water; not a drop before : therefore bear up, and board 'em : Servant-monster, drink to me,
Trin. Servant-monster? the folly of this island! They say, there's but five upon this isle: we are three of them; if the other two be brained like us, the state totters.
Ste. Drink, servant-monster, when I bid thee; thy eyes are almost set in thy head.
Trin. Where should they be set else? he were a brave monster indeed, if they were set in his tail.
Ste. My man-monster hath drowned his tongue in sack: for my part, the sea cannot drown me: I swam, ere I could recover the shore, five-and-thirty leagues, off and on, by this light.—Thou shalt be my lieutenant, monster, or my standard.
Trin. Your lieutenant, if you list; he's no standard.
Trin. Nor go neither: but you'll lie, like dogs; and yet say nothing neither.
Ste. Moon-calf, speak once in thy life, if thou beest a good moon-calf.
Cal. How does thy honour? Let me lick thy shoe: I'll not serve him, he is not valiant.
Trin. Thou liest, most ignorant monster ; I am in case to justle a constable : Why, thou deboshed} fish thou, was there ever man a coward, that hath drunk so much sack as I to-day? Wilt thou tell a monstrous lie, being but half a fish, and half a monster?
Cal. Lo, how he mocks me! wilt thou let him, my lord ?
Trin. Lord, quoth he!--that a monster should be such a natural!
Cal. Lo, lo, again! bite him to death, I pr’ythee.
Ste. Trinculo, keep a good tongue in your head; if you prove a mutineer, the next tree–The poor monster's my subject, and he shall not suffer indignity. ! Cal. I thank my noble lord. Wilt thou be pleas'd To hearken once again the suit I made thee?
Sté. Marry will I: kneel, and repeat it; I will stand, and so shall Trinculo. :
Enter Ariel, invisible.
